Derek Benfield writes this clever and undeniably funny farce “Touch and Go” that was staged by Theater Dionysos in 2011.
When Brian takes up jogging, his wife Hilary is not surprised. She has often told him he should exercise more after all the business lunches he consumes. But when Brian is ostensibly running round the park, he is, in fact, spending a couple of hours with his girl friend, Wendy, in his good friend George’s flat. The arrangement works well for some time, for while Brian is visiting Wendy, helpful George knows that there is no danger of his own dalliance being discovered; for the object of his affection is Brian’s wife, Hilary! It is all plain sailing until George’s wife Jessica returns too soon from a business trip to America and puts the cat among the pigeons.
I got to play the ditsy and uniquely naive Wendy along with Christos Yiangou, Elena Christofi, Penny Finiri and Panagiotis Larkou, under the direction of Athena Xenidou.
